among christians when it comes to gun control. i mean, a public religion institute survey which of taken before the newtown shooting showed that white evangelical protestants were less likely to favor tighter gun laws than catholics. white mainline protestants are religiously unaffiliated americans. why do you think that is? >> thank you for that question. i mean, i think that's a wonderful question. we should not be surprised that many of our people of faith in this country who are all americans, are very much passionate about the second amendment and gun rights. at the same time, we should not -- we should also not be surprised that there are just as many people of faith if not more who are all in favor of common sense gun laws and promoting a culture of peace and healing in our communities. and i believe that it is our time and our moment to look within ourselves and the principles of our faith to unite our country around a common moral imperative to address the gun violence that is in our country. even to those statistics that you've just lifted up, interestingly enough, the national
